While a proper and regular skin care regimen is the ultimate key to achieving flawless skin, the right amount and combination of makeup products also go a long way in achieving a flawless glam. Top makeup artists agree that the key to flawless glam is how you prep your skin as it makes blending much easier and smoother.
When you use more makeup products than required or do not start makeup on a smooth slate it denies you of a flawless glam. Using the right techniques is also a key to achieving that smooth finish. You may choose to skip any technique or product but skin prepping is a must when “flawlessness” issa goal! The smallest skin prep can make a huge difference in how your makeup comes out.
